    From Wikipedia:

    “As in many insects, ladybugs in temperate regions enter diapause during the winter, so they often are among the first insects to appear in the spring. Some species (e.g., Hippodamia convergens) gather into groups and move to higher land, such as a mountains, to enter diapause.”

    I’ve witnessed swarms of millions passing by for up to 15 minutes (not here, of course). Pretty crazy. Science!
